Opening for the Grateful Dead
'Level With Me' cuts in, first few seconds missing (tape flip) This AUD master tape is owned by me, but I didn't record the show. Before me, it owned by Jeff S. Recently, Jeff said this wasn't one of his own recordings, but he picked it up at a flea market just a few weeks after the show! He transferred the tape to his own CDR for his private collection, then gave it to me as a gift! One has to believe there is a SBD of this show as well, although it never has appeared.
I did no EQ'ing or editing on this. This is a 'pure' recording of what the twenty one year old tape sounds like. As you will hear, it is still in amazing shape! As always, this is for trade only and NOT FOR SALE!
This FLAC was premired on CipQuick, an online group specializing in John Cipollina recordings, with a zest of using the best known sources. You are welcome to check us at... http://groups.msn.com/CipQuick
Endless thanks to Jeff S. for the source tape! This is for you!

Subject: My first Dino's show
As for board tapes, I was hanging out with some taper friends behind the sound board. The board was analog and I seem to remember reel to reel along with the cassette. Anybody looking for a board might want to try KFOG. They broadcast Dead New Year's shows of that era. The Dino's were one of the only bands that I saw everybody pay attention to who opened for the Dead. Needless to say, I saw the Dino's many more times. Met John, he had a thing going with my roommate. Also, one time, we followed Meryl from the Lincoln district to Santa Cruz for a Catalist show one time. Meryl in his 230 SL Mercedes. Ivroy colored.

Subject: Excellent... warts and all!
Second, the QMS is still pending, but soon as I get a green light (or if.. fingers crossed), then the fun will begin! This will be found under "quicksilver"
Third, in 1982 era SBD will be a cassette as well, so it might be just equal to this recording or perhaps even worse. I have spent about 6 years now trying to track it down and have had no luck.
Lastly, I don't EQ any of my offerings. I leave it "flat" so it's true to the master reel (or 1st or 2nd gen) sound. Anyone can then feel free to EQ it personally, the way their ears want it. I argee there is some problems on this, most noticeable is the lack of some decent bass, but I am sure will argee the performance energy makes up for it.
